Every critique is appreciated! I don't feel like my cylinders improved much over the course of the exercise, but I do feel more confident while making them.

You have done a good job at drawing the ellipses and lines with confidence, however ensure to draw the the lines ellipses more tightly/compact next time.

You also have grasped a good concept of convergence of lines of the box and the cylinders towards their respective shared vanishing points.

These are what I use when doing these exercises. They usually run somewhere in the middle of the price/quality range, and are often sold in sets of different line weights - remember that for the Drawabox lessons, we only really use the 0.5s, so try and find sets that sell only one size.

Alternatively, if at all possible, going to an art supply store and buying the pens in person is often better because they'll generally sell them individually and allow you to test them out before you buy (to weed out any duds).
